Destination Spotlight: Jamaica

Travelers who appreciate warm tropical waters, white sandy beaches and laid-back surroundings will enjoy Jamaica.

The third-largest of the Caribbean islands, this beautiful and culturally rich island has lots to offer its visitors.

If sun and relaxation are your thing, there is beach around every bend and nestled in every cove.  With more than 635 miles of coastline there is plenty of space to relax—drink in hand—while soaking up the sun.

The sparkling blue Caribbean water is an amazing sight and there are plenty of opportunities all over the island to go out skiing, surfing or even parasailing.  The ocean is remarkably crystal clear, which lends itself perfectly for snorkeling and scuba diving.

Looking to go beyond the beaches?  Don’t worry there is still lots to do.
